    Veteran center Jamaal Jackson made one last run at playing in the NFL at a tryout with the New York Giants, but after just one day, he decided to call it a career on Saturday, according to the New York Daily News. "He came in and he was very nice. He just said, 'Coach, I just don't feel like my heart's in it,' " coach Tom Coughlin said after morning practice at rookie minicamp on Saturday. However, Jackson reportedly told The News Journal of Wilmington on Saturday, that he hadn't official retired but was "contemplating" it and would play if given the "right opportunity." Jackson said he just wanted to see how much he had left to give the game before deciding if it was time to retire, according to the Star-Ledger on Friday. "Just trying to feel around and see what I got left, if anything, and just try to run around with the kids basically," Jackson said.
